And the No. 1 Album is...

In a year filled with disappointments, missed chances, and over hype, 2008 will down as a lax year in music. Fortunately for this Brooklyn-based band, 2008 was the year of TV on the Radio. What's that? You thought it was Coldplay. Go shut into your room with your soccer mom. No it wasn't the year for one pretentious group, but the year of one confident American band. Dear Science is filled with brilliant sounding modern rock, mixed in with other influences. Trumpets seem to proclaim them as the new kings of rock music. It's a triumphant album and 2008's best.
